Blacksburg is a beautiful small town, quietly nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains of Southwest Virginia. Quaint, family owned restaurants line the streets of downtown to complete the "Main Street" vibe. Family friendly, active residents, live music, farmers markets, outdoor gathering spaces, and close to proximity to outdoor recreation hallmark this town. Can get crowded when classes are in session at Virginia Tech, students and locals are actively learning to grow together. Absolutely wonderful place to spend any amount of time; especially longer stays.
Only complaints are about the weather, in the Winter you can expect to experience all 4 seasons in 1 day. In every season there are tons of fun in-door and out-door activities and clubs that you can find on Facebook for all of them. Try rock climbing and kayaking!
This is a small town with so much packed into it! There are outdoor activities, great restaurants, and plenty of nightlife. It's great for college-aged residents, in addition to being a great retirement area.
